#370327 Intoducing Me

Posted by BroMatt on 19 April 2014 - 02:02 PM

You have to becareful what you post here. I have been reading the forum for about 6 years now, they censor and delete here. I have seen many people get banned from here for something they posted. You do not have to break a rule to get banned from here. They will just ban you if they do agree with you.


Not sure where you are getting by our information from as our ban list is very, very small.

To say they were banned for something they posted is quite obvious, what else do you do on message boards other than post?

The last few weeks have been very hectic for me and I have not been able to spend time needed on here. All the support requests, DM's, and tickets will be addressed shortly. I'm going away this weekend to preach revival in South PA and will have a little free time then. The week after that I am on vacation in Vermont and will have plenty of time there to get caught up.

 

Things in my life have changed drastically (In a very good way) and in a week or so I'll post all that the Lord is doing my life.

 

Sorry about the away time, things should get back to normal soon. :) 

 

Mods have been awesome in holding the fort. Don't forget to thank them.

#365493 Pastors That Don't Drop There Offering At Giving Time?

Posted by BroMatt on 14 March 2014 - 10:31 AM

For the record, I do believe that Pastoral Staff does need to set an example, but that is NOT an excuse for me to disobey God. I'm an accountable for my own actions




#365490 Pastors That Don't Drop There Offering At Giving Time?

Posted by BroMatt on 14 March 2014 - 09:57 AM

I seen in the past not now, that pastors don't give at the offering time. Or If there is a special offering for a missionary,guess singer,  and speaker. They will ask for a special offering for this person, but they them self don't give. Could they think that it is the job of the members only to give?

I'm more concerned about whether I'm pleasing God in my giving than whether someone else is.

#365010 What Does King James Only Really Means?

Posted by BroMatt on 11 March 2014 - 01:45 PM

So, if you want God's Word in your native tongue, should it be translated from the Received Text or from the King James Bible.

Translate from the Received Texts. Much more of a precise language than English and it was directly inspired.

#364868 What Color Is Your Church?

Posted by BroMatt on 10 March 2014 - 09:25 AM

Our church building is blue and white. Not a typical church building. It was a racquetball center before it was given to us. Kind of unique as we have a few racquetball courts in the church.

#364842 Why I Am Leaving The Church Growth Movement

Posted by BroMatt on 09 March 2014 - 09:18 PM

Who are these pastors from which camps? Are they Lutheran? Presbyterian? Catholic? Are they Reformed? or are they Fundamentalists?

They have ranged from Catholic Priests to Fundamentalists.
 

I answered it, I'm sorry it wasn't the answer you were looking for

My apologies, the answer I was looking for was for your explanation of Scripture, not just posting a reference. Seeing how we interpret verses differently, I thought it would only make sense for your explanation of them.
 

I don't know you, I gave my answer again. I based my answer on what I said earlier, remember?

Again, the answer I was looking for was for your explanation of Scripture.
 

Sure, as long as you don't guilt them into a decision based on a '"1-2-3 repeat this prayer after me". You see salvation is more than that....Eph 1:4-8 Jn 11:25-26 ; Phil 1:6

What do you know about me that would imply that I would do that? I preach against 1-2-3 prayers all the time, and I'm not sure why you are stereotyping IFB's. 
 

At my church, we don't go "soulwinning". we see it as our entire lives we are out on visitation, whether home, in the neighborhood, at work, at kids soccer games

We do that too, but we also set up a time to go out to reach those we normally would never come in contact while  out.
 
I do not understand your response to another question. My question was "One more thing. Can you show me where I have a standards and morality based Gospel? Since you know so much about what I believe, I'm hoping to understand myself a little better". Your answer was "I don't know you, I gave my answer again. I based my answer on what I said earlier, remember?" Can you point me to your answer? I just mentioned how you know I have a standards and mortality based Gospel. You would have to know me to make that assumption and you stated you do not know me. I'm confused on your answer and I'm hoping you can shed some light on it for me. Thank you.




#364737 Lord's Day 3/9/14

Posted by BroMatt on 08 March 2014 - 09:30 AM

Not sure if I will be on OB for the rest of today so everyone have a great day in the Lord's house tomorrow. Don't forget to give the Lord the whole day. 

 

Also, after Sunday Morning service, let us know what your pastor (or you) preached on. I'll try to remember to post it here as well.

I have also noticed that you purposely did not answer James questions, which would lead me to believe that you do not have answers. Is that True? Is so, we would love to help you.



Thanks, but no thanks. I had my fill of standards and morality based gospel. I am quite content now with the grace of Jesus, thank you

 

Sorry to hear that.

I love to learn more (that is why I'm on here), and that is why I talk to pastors and laymen of different camps all the time. I do it to gain more insight and grow closer to the Lord. I want to encourage you to use Scripture and explain it. Many false teachings are out there because someone is taking a verse out of context, or does not understand the meaning a certain verse.

 

It is your choice not to answer James questions, but if you have the "truth" from Scripture why not share it with us? 

 

One more thing. Can you show me where I have a standards and morality based Gospel? Since you know so much about what I believe, I'm hoping to understand myself a little better. :)

 

I'm off to go  soul-winning. Can you pray with me for souls to be saved and lives turned back to God? I would appreciate it. Thank you.




#364543 Pastors That Are Playing Too Much Golf...

Posted by BroMatt on 06 March 2014 - 02:57 PM

Some would argue that one does not have their own time. If every minute is not directly dedicated to "christian" things then you are out of the will of God.

Members have family and needs too.

Rom 10:14  ".....and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? Are we to believe that all Christians are preachers?

If so, then we need to stop the misuse of the word/title.
 

 

By "their own time" I'm talking about non church type actives like sleeping and eating. If I was going to fulfill the great commission 100% of the time I would never sleep, and I would be on visitation with a slice of pizza in my hand stuffing my mouth while talking with my mouth full. Kinda silly for those who think one does not have their own time. Don't confuse own time with wasted time.

Funny, he mentions manipulation: that's where the IFB leads the league, If you don't feel guilty, you haven't been preached to!!

 

Thanks for giving us the title of "leading the league".  I have also noticed that you purposely did not answer James questions, which would lead me to believe that you do not have answers. Is that True? Is so, we would love to help you.
